How to Overcome Self Doubt and Feeling Unworthy

How to Overcome Self Doubt and Feeling Unworthy

Two of the biggest challenges we face can be our own self doubt and feeling unworthy.

I know I struggled with both of these for many years. These are the two reasons that I never created any success in my business. I create my own self doubt, no one is going to believe me, no one is going to think I am successful at this, or my favorite... I am a Chef why should anyone believe that I can teach online marketing. I made up a lot of excuses. I held myself back from achieving my dreams. I was truly my own worst enemy.

Then came feeling unworthy... I am too new at this! I am not worthy of making any money. What will people think if I fail? what if I succeed?

So after my walk this morning and my meditation I decided to quickly share what was on my mind about both of these topics.

What has to happen to overcome self doubt and feeling unworthy

I know a lot of my friends like to listen to music when they excersice but I actually like to listen to audio books on self development. This helps clear my mind and really sets the tone for my day.

So for the past couple of days I have been listening to Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker. One of my favorite authors and speakers.

Today Harv was talking about feeling unworthy and how that is the mentality of a poor person. He talks about changing your mindset and accepting yourself as being worthy. The only worth you have is the one you create for yourself. You carry within you the power to be made to feel worthy or unworthy. I have let the doubters in a time or two. They say stuff like... "you're a chef, what do you know about teaching blogging." "Really, who is going to believe you?" and the list could go on and on.

So when I got home I started working on my meditation and journal-ling and you know what today's topic is... Self Doubt!

It was like the universe knew that I need to hear this today. It can be easy to give up after not seeing success right away. It can be hard work to do what needs to be done every day. But I know I am capable of creating my own success. I know in my heart that I have the entrepreneurial spirit. I have been studying blogging and online marketing for the past 5 years. I just never took action until recently.

It was when I decided to quit my job and start working online marketing full time that my life began to change. It was when I committed to my dreams that things began to happen. It was when I committed to doing a video a day and a blog a day that my life and my business began to change.

Would it have been easy to give up and give in to self doubt and feeling unworthy. Yup! ...almost too easy, then I would have to go out and find a J.O.B and I really don't feel like surrendering my life back over to a boss. I like my freedom and the choice I get to make. No more asking for time off, no more punching a clock, no more feeling like I am under paid.

So if you are struggling with self doubt and feeling unworthy, know that you are worthy and beautiful. I recommend reading The Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, by T. Harv Eker. It has helped me and I know it can help and inspire you also.

Yours in Gratitude,

Chef Katrina

    It is interesting that I was reading your blog today. I had spent a good deal of time trying to write a blog about something I had failed at but then succeeded. It was an assignment for a challenge I was involved in. It was just not working so I changed directions with my writing but as I started on the new direction it came to me what I needed to write about. It was amazing. Then I was able to write the blog in no time but previous to that I could not think of anything I had succeeded at. We all have doubts at times but just need to step back and look at it a different way. Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Sherie! Thank you for commenting. I do believe it is the action and consistent action to achieve dreams. :)

  • I think it is best to try and eliminate all forms of negative self talk. All it does is destroy your mood and makes you feel worthless, when that isn't true.

    Just my little ole opinion, but this is the best blog and video you have created to date....not taking away from all the numerous videos, blogs, training sessions etc. etc...that you have created over these years, honestly. This post was pure you...I could see, hear and even feel every word you said! In my book, that's un heard of in all the info out here on the web. Also, it was like you were talking straight to me...and I know many will feel the same way. You are absolutely correct, the only thing we have to FEAR is FEAR itself! Katrina, you step up and talk about the things that no-one else doesand for doing just that...Today you have inspired not just me alone but, countless others...and that is proof that you stand alone (but not by yourself) At times I guess that I must go all in or go home! Thank you so very much for the pick me up and just being You! No more excuses for me! Its All or Nothing from here on out for myself! Keep on Keeping on!!

    I agree-- the fear of criticism can be overwhelming. Especially after experiencing criticism and the rejection that often comes with network marketing, I know this fear has been a stumbling block for me as well.

      Thank you so much for sharing Terri. It isn't easy to admit we have fear. Sometimes it is nice to know that others struggle the same way we do. Keep strong!
